The City of Northwood Fire Deptartment is a public department with members being either part-time or paid-on-call. We currently have an ISO rating of 4. We protect approximately 6,000 citizens in a 8.5 square mile area, including portions of I-75, I-280, SR 579, and SR 51. The City is primarily residential, but the industrial areas are expanding very quickly.
We have a Part-Time City Fire Chief who oversees all operations of the Fire Department. He is assisted by a Deputy Chief, a District Chief, a Captain, and six Lieutenants.
In addition to having a Part-Time Fire Chief, we also have two personnel on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These personnel respond to all runs in the City and also take care of day-to-day tasks such as fire inspections and Public Relations.
